NEW CUMBERLAND – Former Chester resident Lauren Carr will return to Hancock County on Friday for a visit to Swaney Memorial Library.
Carr has written three mystery novels, and will greet mystery enthusiasts and sign copies of her latest book beginning at 2 p.m. She will be at the library from 2-6 p.m. and will read from her books from 5-6 p.m.
Carr now lives in Harper’s Ferry. Her newest mystery is “It’s Murder, My Son.” Her previous books, “A Reunion to Die For,” and “A Small Case of Murder,” were set in Chester….
…”It’s Murder, My Son,” is set in Deep Creek Lake, Md., and introduces a new character, Mac Faraday, a bankrupt homicide detective. Carr said she didn’t move away from Joshua Thornton and Chester because she was tired of the character or the town. Her latest plot simply needed a detective rather than a lawyer at its center.
